About Adrian Bonnington

We are from the UK. We chose Antigua for our holiday home after visiting many places. Wonderful, friendly people. Fantastic beaches AND a rainforest!

Adrian Bonnington purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Adrian Bonnington chose St. Mary

We chose to have this property built for us so we could decide on the layout and decor. We particularly chose this site as there are only 4 apartments with beautiful gardens and an amazing pool.

What makes this apartment unique

One of the key decisions for us was choosing an upstairs apartment. This gives a feeling of much more space because of the vaulted ceilings. This also makes it cooler and we also benefit from a pleasant cooling breeze when opening doors at the front and rear of the apartment. However, the best bit about upstairs is the view - you look across open views towards the sea. Perfectly positioned for Amazing Sunsets!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Adrian,

A couple of days back at work and Antigua is just a distant memory.

We could not fault the apartment – the position, cleanliness and facilities were all excellent!! Robert was very efficient, friendly and helpful.

It was a fantastic holiday and we loved Antigua and your apartment – it was just right!

Thank you for all your help and we would certainly recommend Hamilton House to our friends.



The apartment was perfect, really spacious and clean, with everything you could need! Breakfast on the balcony was lovely in the morning with a fab view. We had a very warm and informative welcome, with a tour of the local area which was very useful, and the taxi driver was nothing less than fantastic! The nearest beaches were in our opinion the best on the island, with lovely cafes and restaurants all nearby. Thanks so much, we will definately recommend this apartment to friends and family!!

Very good place to stay close to Jolly Harbour Marina.

The apparement was clean and quiet. Everything was there. The pool is clean. The washing machine is not working very well and I also suggest to buy new skillets, but all the others appliances are very good.

We had a very enjoyable stay in Hamilton House, the location was ideal, near to all amenities, ie supermarket, restaurants, beach, but far enough away for it to be a lovely quiet spot!

Yasmine was very helpful and we could ring her anytime with any queries.

Plenty of fresh linen, towels and beach towels, which was a plus.

The only negative being the water pressure in one of the bathrooms, it was very low and not very good for a shower, however the other bathroom was fine and we used this one.

I would recommend this property to a friend or relative!

Lovely island

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was just right for the 4 of us. As it was September the area was very quiet and not much was open in the harbour. There was no one else in the other apts so we had the pool to ourselves apart from an Antiguan tarantula (non poisonous) who went swimming twice. Loved the island and the beaches were fantastic. Most of the local beaches did not have any restaurant facilities as they were all closed down for the low season. The apartment had everything we needed and very good wifi . Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for a month over the Christmas period and had an amazing time! The location is great right next to sugar ridge and quiet. We joined sugar ridge gym which has great equipment and facilities with air con! The apartment was faultless! Robert the manager was very helpful and provided fresh linen and towels regularly. He didn't try pushing trips and excursions on you! However you will find some of the locals do but a polite no usually does the trick. The locals are so friendly! All the restaurants we went to were very good some don't look much but the food is great although service may be slow! Would definately recommend this apartment and would return again and again!

Close to one of the best beaches in the world! Antigua is about 14 miles long by 11 miles wide and is renowned for it's 365 stunning beaches and miles of picturesque coves. There is a great selection of restaurants within easy reach. Many of these are by the sea and have stunning views.


VC Bird International, near St Johns, 20 minutes drive. Car hire is recommended. We can offer attractive rates through a local car hire company. Ask for full details.


15 minutes from St Johns. Just a few minutes walk to the Jolly Harbour Marina. The beach is a few hundred yards away and was recently voted one of the ten best beaches in the world!

Further Details:

The entrance to Jolly Harbour Marina and resort is just a few minutes walk from the apartment. This extensive complex offers the largest and finest marina in the Caribbean and superb recreation facilities. A fine 18-hole golf course and a sports centre with swimming pool, tennis courts, and a squash court, cater for the actively minded, whilst the commercial centre has a wide range of shops, restaurants, bars, and a new, modern supermarket to sustain the needs for everyday living. For all it's many amenities, Jolly Harbour remains a sophisticated and tranquil setting to while away the holiday hours.

Everything on Antigua is within easy driving distance. Travel a few miles down the stunning coastline and you soon come to Fig Tree Drive. Here you drive through the amazing rain forest. You can take a 'tree top trail' through the forest canopy. As you head further south you come to English Harbour & Nelsons Dockyard. Loads more places for eating out and a great selection of local stores.

A trip to the capital, St John's gives a wonderful insight to local caribbean life. A wonderful mix of local markets alongside designer outlets:

Heritage Quay - Duty Free shopping for brands such as Rolex, Cartier, Chanel, Tommy Hilfiger, Diamonds International etc..

Redcliffe Quay – for elegant restaurants set in shady courtyards, and beautiful handcrafted pottery and gifts.

Cricket is a passion in Antigua. If you are a cricket fan you must visit the new Sir Viv Richards Stadium or The Stickey Wicket West Indies Cricket Hall of Fame.

The other passion is Sailing! For sailing enthusiasts try and catch Antigua Sailing Week or the Antigua Classic Yacht Race.

If you like to party there is plenty to do in Antigua. Loads of live music and if you can make it for Carnival then you are in for a real treat.
